Though Peavey is better-known for amplifiers and PA equipment, the Peavey T-15 electric guitar of the 1980s is something of a hidden gem -- and an affordable one, at that. This short-scale oddity, dubbed the "Mississippi Mustang" by its owners and admirers, was originally marketed as an entry-level/student instrument, though their consistency and durability has recently found some favor and landed them in rather wide use for touring indie rock bands. Fast and comfortable to play, the pickups are really what brings it home here. These humbucker-sized single coils have an awesome tone that really brings out the resonance and sustain that the solid ash body provides. Check out Reverb's selection of T-15s, get one in your hands and see the great playability and killer tone that these overlooked guitars have to offer.

  • Get one.

    Short scale, but not kid sized. Great pickups. Incredible necks. Easy to find, and usually pretty cheap. They are not "rare", just under appreciated.

  • Amazing guitar grap one while you can

    Super good and a high quality guitar. I'm surprised they where the student model. It's a very good guitar with a impressive tone. I prefer it to my us Tele. The T-15 has more mojo. I'm lucky I have a brand new one (form a forgenten stock ) and when you see the quality of the craftsmanship I'm amaze…

  • Small yet mighty

    Great spunk and funk. Pretty amazing Pups. Exceeded my expectations.

    Outstanding! Best guitar I have ever had... Great tone and plays the blues like a more expensive guitar!

  • great short scale guitar

    solidly crafted for the money and the short scale makes it great for younger folks learning to play.
